Welcome to Taos, @olga.gopp ,
Glad you came to visit.
@Regranned from @olga.gopp - Michael Walker is showing how the pantograph is working. A pantograph is a manual engraving machine that's extremely flexible. Gives opportunity to create complex design for knife handle and manually engrave it in ultra fine details. @michaelwalkertaos #michaelwalkerknives #walkerknives #walkerworkshop #knifeequipment #knifeworkshop #folderknife #knife #knife #knivesofig #knifepics #knivesofinstagram #knifecollection #knifemaker #knifemakerslife #knifemakercommunity - #regrann

Pounding out some new blades today. #makingknives #knifemakercommunity #knifemania #

@youngknives_ I just used a log splitter pump and valve. I made my own hydraulic fluid tank but you can buy those too. If you like I can show you the different dies I have made if you like also. Let me know if you need anything! #damascus #forgingpress #knifemakercommunity

Mail call from @peteskustomkoa !!! "How could you possibly sell a knife for $1500+?!?!?" Start with the best materials. The big Koa block will be spectacular once shaped and finished. Pete hooked me up...this would normally be in the $80-120 range for a massive block with the figure/character this piece has. And the SugiPine is so pretty!!! Thank you Pete!!! 😊😊😊 #hawaiianwood #knifemakercommunity #toonice

Trying something new. It's been cut out and waiting for a while. Grinder set up is so much better now! Still got a long way to go but I think I definitely getting there. Especially as a part time grinder!!! #knifemakingcommunity #knifemaker #knifemaking #knifemakercommunity #knifemakerslife

Making progress slowly.I still have a lot to learn. I made a few mistakes that I learned from but that's why I didn't use an expensive metal to start out. I think I m hooked on knife making. #knifemakercommunity #knifecomunity #homemade #homemadeknives #customknivesofinstagram #knivesofinstagram #edc #minicleaver #utilitycleaver #whatsinyourpocket #knifeartist #pocketdump #knives #meatcleaver #customknifemaker

Well I managed to drill the hole for my 38 special shell casing pins crooked. I don't need to use a drill press I can drill that straight no problem. I don't know how much it shows but it's all I see at this point.the first knife I made was rough because I intended to carry it to work. I spent some time on this one and made a rookie mistake. #duh #stupid #drillpress #dummy #knifemakercommunity #knifemaker #hobbies #knifecommunity #knifeaddict #edc #customknivesofinstagram #knivesofinstagram #knifenut #drillfirstsandlater #veryametureknifemaker #ametureknifemaker #whatsinyourpocket #measuretwice #cutonce #pocketdump #minicleaver #meatcleaver #utilitycleaver #knives

Still sanding (by hand) I m making slow progress.The scales are almost ready for stain and clear.I m gonna glue the ends of the .38 caliber shell casings to the 2 bolts in the scales.Can anyone recomend anything different/better than glueing the cut off shell casings to the ends of the bolts? #knifemakercommunity #ametureknifemaker #2ndknifemade #knivesofinstagram #pocketdump #knifecomunity #knifecollecter #minicleaver #handmadeknives #handmade #handsanded #edc #whatsinyourpocket #knifenut #knifeaddict #knifeartist #customknives #customknivesofinstagram

This is the 2nd knife I've made.This is @eashabeth mini cleaver I'm making for her.i still have a lot of sanding to do but after that's done I will be ready to stain the scales (handles).the stain will be the same black that is in the background of the pic.The 38 special shell casings will be cut off to cap the hardware that holds the handles on.It should be nice when I get finished. #knifemakercommunity #knivesofinstagram #cleaverknife #knifemaker #homemadeknives #edc #customknives #whatsinyourpocket #knifecomunity #knifecollecter #pocketdump #meatcleaver #veggiecleaver #knives #everydaycarry #tactical #homemade #pocketdumpnation #powerfulllspbladedesign #lspbladedesign

I made both of these knives.The #cleaverknife has a way to go but I have some scrap leather I m gonna attempt to make a sheath for the #skinningknife (bottom) . #LeatherCraftsmen everywhere cringe lol. #knifemakercommunity #knifecollecter #knifecommunity #edc #sheath #knives #knifenut #tool #weapon #art #knifeaddict

Just have to give a #shoutout to @dabneyknives for making such a kick@ss, quality blade. Been using it since winning it in July, and it's still going strong. It's become my daily driver in the kitchen! Go check out his work and give him some love! #tagamakertuesday

Pounding out some new blades today. #makingknives #knifemakercommunity #knifemania #

Well the @techspecusa scales still need trimmed but my first knife is basically finished.I hand drew and cut 2 knives from an old saw blade.The skinning knife is so sharp!I don't expect it to hold an edge but these are the first knives I ve made. I ll get better as I learn more and find better blade material.The tech spec scales grip so good! I have some leather I m going to make sheaths with for both knives.I need to purchase more tech spec for the cleaver and sand the paint off of it.#diyknives #ametureknifemaker #knifecomunity #knifecollecter #knifemakers #knifeartist #knifeaddict #minicleaver #fixedblade #homemadeknives #cheapfinish #cheapknife #knifeperson #edc #whatsinyourpocket #knives #firstknifebuild #knifemakercommunity #

Really digging this combo... Decided to go dark on this #hamon and paired it up with some curly koa and unidirectional carbon fiber. Should look awesome after contouring!

I think I'm starting to get a feel for these hamons. This is one of two knives I was working on today... For this one, I tried a different etching method in getting the hamon out on this 1095 chef's knife. I definitely dig it, but not sure which look I like better yet. As I continue to learn more and more techniques, I'm sure I'll find my groove. In the meantime, I'm having a blast! Have a great weekend!

Handle is now fixed, sanded, and stained. Now I’m using some books on the shelf to hold it while it cures. The pen is mightier?

Here's a still shot of the previously posted chef's knife. I really do think that I love working with curly koa... This #kitchentool is already spoken for.

Finally finished with this piece! Raindrop carbon #Damascus full tang blade, copper & blue G10 liners, curly #koa and #carbonfiber scales with copper corbys. Sending her of in a matching koa wood saya and carbon fiber pin. This one's already spoken for, but feel free to shoot a DM to commission your own build! Thanks for checking it out!

I have a feeling this one's going to be a looker after etching the blade... Raindrop #Damascus full tang blade, copper with blue g10 liners, carbon fiber + curly koa scales

Felt good to be back on the grind(er?) after a week of unpacking, hurricane debris clean up, and a temporary fence repair until lumber is restocked in #orlando. Got this #chefsknife ground up to 220 on the belt grinder, and a quick etch to see how she'll look with the chosen materials. #Curlykoa + #carbonfiber + rain drop carbon #damascussteel.

@gardnerknives handforged Damascus kitchen-cooks-chefs knife 180 layers, blade length is 200mm OAL is 335 mm handle is of nickel silver and York gum burl#bespoke #chefstalk #chefsworld ##australianmade #knittersofinstagram #knifemakercommunity #australianknifemaker , thanks all , cheers baz

Awesome hand made alpaca beanie made by @hillbilysquirl go check him out he makes some great stuff. Knives too!! #alpaca #alpacabeanie #hillbilysquirl #knifemakers #knifemakercommunity #knives #handmade #blades #bladesmithcommunity

This guy took a little longer than expected due to working on it from home mostly while #hurricane prepping... Probably the last #knife for a bit until I know what's up with the house and shop next week. That said, specs on this one was 1095 with a way better than expected #hamon, scales are acrylic and burl with white liners and forged #carbonfiber bolsters. I really liked how the Bowie with hidden pins came out, so I took a gamble on this one and it paid off. I definitely expect to be doing more with hidden hardware in the future. All my #florida friends, please be safe... #HurricaneIrma looks to be one pissed off bitch!

Always learning new things is the key... While I really liked how that #hamon came out on the #chefsknife in the previous post, I had played the what if game with different ways I could have used to make the hamon pop even more. After finishing up some chores this morning, I shot up to the shop for a couple of hours before coming to meet some family for lunch. I think this is what I'm keeping it at... I showed the previous pic to the client and he loved it. I think he'll be really stoked with this last try! Have a great labor day, everyone!

Pretty happy with how this #hamon came out on this #chef knife... #cheflife #cheftoys #cheflifestyle

Finished this one up tonight for @dakinepoke! Lasered in a little extra something on the matching koa wood saya... Swipe left for more pics! A nice little break from the #chefsknife orders on deck!
OAL 17", blade length 10.25", stabilized curly koa handle with carbon fiber holster and damascus blade. Koa wood saya for continuity. #cheflife #cheftoys #cheflifestyle

Got this #yanagiba #knife pretty shiny before etching on the logo, then I'll give it a dunk into the etchant to bring out the #Damascus pattern. Grinded it up to 220 grit on the belt grinder, then 500, 1000, 1200, 3000, & 5000 grits by hand. As always, #madeinorlando #madebyhand #madeinamerica!

This is by far the longest grind that I've done... 16.75 OAL with a 10.25" cutting edge. Only a little over halfway done with the bevel, then working up the grits to refine the finish, do a very shallow hollow grind on the back side, hand sand both sides, then fitting and shaping the handle. Stoked with the progress on this so far... This is one of three culinary knives I'm building, with the other two being chef's knives.

Dropped by to see Paul Macdonald (no IG) today at his shop in Old Town. Paul makes swords of all description and Fairbairn-Sykes daggers. Super nice guy and he's also been to North Carolina!

Das sharp!

Another shot of this cool little #tanto #neckknife made from 1095 high carbon steel. This one's already spoken for, but feel free to DM me for commissions! Thanks for looking...

Got my knifemaker brand back! Got the machines running on the workshop, soon will be back in the action!! #knifemaker #sharp #knifesharpening #backintoaction #bladesmith #knifemakercommunity #fdknives #knifemakersdonthavearmhair

Quick update on this one from the weekend... Got the scales wrapped in #alligator #leather and epoxied on to the liners along with the #carbonfiber bolster and pommel. The handle and scales will have hidden hardware so as to not take away from the gator and cf. Loving the combo of the two with the Damascus, giving it a #luxury look and feel. Almost finished with this one... Thanks for looking!
